Economics: Political Science Concentration

Why Study Political Science at Ship?

The political science concentration in economics at Shippensburg University is appropriate for students planning to pursue careers in government, business, law, or international relations. While combining some aspects of a traditional political economy approach, this concentration will also heighten students’ knowledge of the institutional and legal dimensions of major public policy debates.

In addition to the 120 credits required to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in economics, you are required to complete 10 - 11 credits in mathematics and statistics courses and 18 credits of political science courses to fulfill the minor requirements within this concentration. See the Undergraduate Catalog for specific course requirements.
